Anthocyanins is the buzzword here. Besides giving grapes their vibrant color, research shows these plant chemicals also burn abdominal fat.

  • The fat tissue in the belly is more easily burned than fat in other areas and may be more sensitive to the effects of anthocyanins, says University of Michigan researcher Mitch Seymour, Ph.D.
  • These colorful fruits are also rich in heart-healthy anti-oxidants and fiber-so include them in your daily servings regularly.

New studies by Texas AgriLife Research suggest peaches, plums and nectarines may help ward off metabolic syndrome (a name for a group of risk factors, of which belly fat is a predominant determinant)  that increase the risk for obesity-related diseases including diabetes.
